We will feature “Code Black”, an award-winning documentary about America’s busiest Emergency Department in our November 12, 2014 Seattle Health Innovation Meetup from 5:00-7:30. (see trailer at http://codeblackmovie.com). This event is being sponsored by WebMD and is held in the same building where their Seattle development team is located.
According to the film’s promotional materials, “the documentary follows a team of young doctors-in-training as they wrestle openly with both their ideals and with the realities of saving lives in a complex and overburdened system.” Their training ground is Los Angeles County Hospital’s legendary trauma bay “C-booth”. “CODE BLACK offers a tense, doctor’s-eye view, right into the heart of the healthcare debate – bringing us face to face with America’s only 24/7 safety net.” After watching the 80 minute movie we’ll have a chance to talk about it.
CODE BLACK was the Best Documentary winner at Los Angeles Film Festival and the Hamptons International Film Festival. It also was the Audience Award Winner at both Denver Starz Film Festival and Aspen FilmFest.
This is a free event but space is very limited and an RSVP is required for admission. Please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/seattle-health-innovation-forum to reserve your seat. I expect that we’ll reach maximum capacity well before the event, and we might not have room for walk-ins. Please RSVP to get on the attendee list before coming to this one.
Please note that this event is being held at the 705 Union Station Building at 705 5th Ave S Seattle 98104. This will be the first time the Seattle Health Innovator meetup is held at this venue. It is in the International District. The office complex is just south of the historic Union Station and is located upstairs from the International District/China Town stop in the bus tunnel.
I look forward to seeing you there.
